Changes in Soil Properties before and after Wetland Degradation in the Yellow River Delta, ChinaHuang, Chen; Bai, Junhong; Shao, Hongbo; Gao, Haifeng; Xiao, Rong; Huang, Laibin; Liu, Peipei (2012-10-01)The aim of this study is to determine whether wetland degradation in the Yellow River Delta has an effect on its soil properties. Twenty soil samples collected from degraded and undegraded wetlands were analyzed using hierarchical cluster analysis and principal correspondence analysis. The statistical analyses revealed that soil samples from both degraded and undegraded wetlands could be clearly distinguished according to their properties. These soil properties such as nitrate nitrogen, ammoniac nitrogen, and pH showed significant changes after wetland degradation than before. However, degraded wetland soils did not exhibit significant changes in electric conductivity (EC) and soil organic matter (SOM). Six soil properties excluding EC and SOM were transformed to establish a simplified chemical index of soil degradation (CDI) for evaluating wetland soil quality before and after wetland degradation. Lower CDI values of undegraded wetland soils were observed than those of degraded wetland soils. The methods used in this study can be further used in larger areas to evaluate and monitor the degradation status of wetlands, and can contribute to wetland management and restoration practices.
IMAS Web Mapping Services (WMS)The Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) pursues multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary work to advance understanding of temperate marine, Southern Ocean, and Antarctic environments. The IMAS Geoserver catalogues IMAS geospatial data, and hosts a number of other data layers from its collaborators.
